      Hi All,

      I'm new to diecast airliners collecting. I have a few Dragon Wings 1/400 diecast airliners bought from years ago, but haven't been keeping up to date on what's hot and what's not. It seemed Dragon Wings haevn't had many (if any) new releases the last few years? Are they still making anything?

      Thanks,
      Ken

      Hi Ken;

      I'm a diecast airliner collector too, with many Dragon models in my collection. A quick search reveals that Dragon may not be producing new models at present, but I certainly could be wrong. They do, however, appear to be producing military stuff. You might take a look at GeminiJets. They are prolific 1/400 diecast airliner producers, with a wonderful shop/distributorship in Las Vegas, Nevada. they are a bit more pricey than the Dragons are (were), but can be found reasonably on eBay, as can the Dragon models.

      Have fun!

      Hi Ken,

      I collect everything including 1/400 Dragon Wings diecast models. According to my local hobby shop, they're not making any 1/400 models but you'll find their latest model on Ebay. There are plenty of Dragon Wings 1/400 A-380, A-350, B-787 on Ebay. So YES they're pretty much in business.

      Thanks all. Yeah it seems Dragon Wings is not really focused on its airliner releases now. I had a look at the Airplane Shop and ended up buying a few GJs instead.

      Cheers.
